Peter Kueper, from Sneek, Dutch province of Friesland, joined the Anabaptists and moved to Münster, where he seems to have played a rather important part in the "kingdom" of Jan van Leyden. In October 1534 he was one of the "apostles" Jan van Leyden sent out to various Westphalian towns to propagate the views of the "kingdom." Peter Kueper together with Dionysius Vinne and four others went to Osnabrück, where they were apprehended and put to death.
